It might have taken place ten years ago, but who can forget the beautiful wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton? After meeting as students at the University of St Andrews, the long-term couple became engaged during a holiday to Kenya in autumn 2010. They went on to tie the knot at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011, with Prince Harry as best man, beaming alongside his brother.
In the televised ceremony, Harry could even be seen sharing a few words with William as Kate walked down the aisle in her beautiful Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, accompanied by her proud father Michael Middleton.
Whilst viewers at home may not have been able to make out his exact words, it seems that a royal biography might just give fans the insight they’ve been hoping for.

In her 2013 book, Kate: A Biography, royal author Marcia Woody wrote about the exchange between the brothers on this special day.
Marcia wrote: "Harry looked back as Kate started walking down the aisle and reported back to his brother, 'Right, she is here now.'"
The royal author then revealed that Harry reportedly added: “Well, she looks beautiful, I can tell you that."
Prince Harry and his sister-in-law Kate are thought to have a close relationship and this sweet proclamation to William as he waited for his future wife to join him is certainly heartfelt.

Marcia also went on to share what Prince William supposedly said to Kate when he first set eyes on her during the ceremony.
"The couple set eyes on each other, and William murmured to Kate, 'You look beautiful.',” she wrote.
Prince William and Kate have since gone on to have three beautiful children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Whilst Prince William served as best man at Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in May 2018.
Last month saw Harry and Meghan’s shocking “tell-all” Oprah Winfrey interview air, during which Harry expressed his belief that his father and brother were “trapped” in the royal institution. Some have since claimed it was not his “place to say”.
However, despite this suggestion, the Duke of Sussex also spoke of his love for his older brother and the bond they share.
"The relationship is space at the moment," he declared, "and time heals all things, hopefully.
"I love William to bits, he's my brother, we've been through hell together, we have a shared experience, but we were on different paths."
